I’ve always been a big believer in going out into the world and throwing your positive energy to the universe, knowing that what you’ll get in return is bound to be positive.
Part of that belief comes from the understanding that you never know what someone else is going through. Treating them in the nicest way possible, even if they aren’t the nicest people ever, may just turn out to be the best thing you could have done – for both of you.
The other part I learned after skydiving…
As skydivers, positive thinking is a must. Sure, you want to be prepared for the worst, but if you go into every skydive focusing on the worst, that’s what you’re going to get. You may not get a malfunction, but your skydive likely won’t be what it could be if you stay focused on having the best jump ever.
Positive thinking, leads to positive actions, which lends to the idea that people will naturally want to do things for you that will lead to positive outcomes. This can be something as simple as smiling at someone walking down the street, giving a compliment. For all you know, that was the most positive thing that will happen to that person today, and you may have made more of an impact than you think. Then again, maybe it’s just a drop on the bucket of rainbows and kittens that she will experience that day, but either way, it was positive. Sometimes just doing nice things can brighten your day.
So I challenge you, even the most cynical of you, to go out there and try to do one positive thing each day – whether it’s for yourself or someone else. You might just kickstart a whole new pattern of positivity in your life.
Love and blue skies!
